Playing in my journal

Posted by

I try to wipe off stencils and use up grunge paste etc in my journal ready to start new pages and this started as this.  There was some bright pink grunge paste through a paperartsy stencil, some random splodges of pink Dylusions and some yellow acrylic to start with.  Onto this I used a new stencil I bought which is a template for drawing a girls head in profile.  I traced it in pencil then lightly colour blocked it using spectrum noir pencils.


A few days later I added some gesso to her skin to try and mute the texture bits and lighten the Dylusions a little. Then I added some more colour and definition to the hair with Faber Castell pens.


I also stamped out the quote I wanted to use. Again I them left it to sit for a while. Next I added some more colour to the background using inktense pencils and water. I also added some more outlining and shading.

Really pleased with how it’s finished… And yes I think I am finished with it! 

Happy crafting!
